Ingredients

2 fl oz freshly-brewed iced tea

1½ fl oz cranberry moonshine (make your own by soaking fresh cranberries overnight in vodka!)

1½ fl oz Ginger Keep It Simple Syrup

Directions

1Fill a short glass with ice.

2Add all ingredients.

3Stir until combined and garnish cranberries.

Cranberry Moonshine may not always be available in the liquor stores, but it's easy enough to make your own. Simply pour unflavored vodka (or unflavored grain alcohol, for a stronger result) into an airtight glass container, add a handful of fresh cranberries, and store in a dark, room temperature area for any length of time but at least a couple of hours.

Use as much vodka as you want to infuse. We filled a mason jar with 2 cups.

The longer you let the berries steep, the more flavor will be extracted. If you have the patience, carefully puncture each berry with a small fork to help the process along.
